Keeping Your HVAC System Free and Clear

After our heater stopped working altogether last winter, we realized that it might be time to consult with a professional. We called a family friend who is also an HVAC contractor and he came out right away to see what he could do. After taking a look at things, he told us that our vents were almost completely blocked with dust and dirt. He recommended a vent cleaning company to come out and help, and they removed loads of debris the next day with specialized suction tools. After that, our HVAC system ran almost perfectly. This blog is all about the importance of keeping your HVAC system free, clear, and functional.

Four Ways To Cool Your Home More Efficiently This Summer

When the days start growing hotter, you probably start turning on your air conditioner to keep your home more comfortable. To ensure this does not end up costing you a fortune, follow these tips for more energy-efficient cooling this summer.

Don't open your windows at night.

Your air conditioner does not just cool your home by lowering the temperature. It also works to remove moisture from the air, which makes your home feel cooler. When you open your windows at night, you let that humidity back inside. Your air conditioner then has to work harder to remove the humidity again. Leave your windows closed at night, even when the temperature drops, and your home will stay less humid – making things easier on your air conditioner.

Change your air conditioner's filter every month.

Before you get too busy with summer activities, head down to your local hardware store and buy a stack of furnace filters. Set reminders in your phone so you don't forget to pop a new filter in each and every month. It takes a lot more energy for your air conditioner to push air through a dirty, clogged filter than a clean one. So changing your filter regularly will lead to lower energy bills.

Keep the door snakes and insulating curtains in place.

Most homeowners put the door snakes and insulating curtains away once the cold season is over. But, these gadgets are not just good at keeping the heat inside your home. During the summer, they can also keep the cool air inside – so your air conditioner does not have to work as hard to keep the home cool. Leave the door snake across the door, and draw the insulating curtains closed on the hottest days. They'll also keep the hot sun out.

Have your air conditioner tuned up before cooling season is in full swing.

Schedule an appointment with your HVAC technician for a basic inspection and tune-up. He or she will make sure everything is functioning properly. Before parts break so severely that they cause your air conditioner not to work, they may simply cause it to work harder, driving up your energy bills. Your HVAC technician may also make suggestions as to the best settings for your thermostat in order to cool your home more efficiently.

Keeping your home cool should not break the bank. Follow the tips above, and your energy bills should stay in check this summer.
